About Year Long Disaster:

Since their formation in late 2004, Year Long Disaster have channeled the bastardized muddy blues stomps of their forefathers and overlaid them with their own flash and drama.  Of course the band’s pedigree makes their skill set less of a surprise. Guitarist and vocalist Daniel Davies is the son of Kinks’ Dave Davies, bassist Rich Mullins plays in West Virginia instrumental hard-rock trio, Karma To Burn, and drummer Brad Hargreaves moonlights in eight-time platinum-selling group Third Eye Blind.

Year Long Disaster’s 2007 self-titled debut landed them tours with Foo Fighters, The Sword and The Cult, as well as praise from critics and fans alike, including Motörhead’s Lemmy Kilmister (with whom they also toured), who told Kerrang! Magazine that “Year Long Disaster plays rock and roll music like rock and roll should be played.”
